Re: The "I want a website" Guide

Just thought I'd resurrect this thread, what's the best way to get your website listed on the search engines?

Re: The "I want a website" Guide

Ensure that the HTML structure is tidy and correct (i.e. use <h1>,<h2>,<h3> tags for headings and title & alt descriptions for images), get respectable sites to link to you then sit back and wait for a month or two.
Don't bother with <meta> tags, nobody uses them anymore.

I'd not really considered how my guide lacked actual HTML coding for beginners, maybe I should write an addition or at least link to some of the millions of good HTML guides external to CF.

Could I recommend that you remove Xreg from this article? My friend was unable to contact them to arrange a transfer and as a result had to pay Nominet £50 to retag his domains for him. Apparantly Nominet have received numerous complaints about Xreg.

Yeah, it's always important to get your domain names from a good reliable source

What? It's only £15+VAT for one domain name to change the tag going the Nominet route. And only a maximum of £30+VAT for more than 1

If reading this amount of information isn't for you, then I suggest you re-think setting up a website full stop. Because you WILL need to do some research.

~s1lv3r
It didn't matter to me how long it is, all the info and precautions i needed to know on how to get my site registered was in the write-up and took 5 mins to read and understand, whereas reading how to create a website took days/weeks.

Nice one "John M", it helped me

Re: The "I want a website" Guide

My apologies it was £30, not £50 - it's still double the price it should have been if Xreg were any good.
